20.4.3 Deduce structures of the polymers formed by alcohols and carboxylic acids IB Chemistry

20.4.2 Describe, using equations, the reactions of amines with carboxylic acids. Amines react with carboxylic acids to produce an amide and a water molecule. This is a condensation reaction (the products include a small molecule and a larger product). Both monomers need to be double ended, a diol and a dioic acid. The polymer is a CONDENSATION polymer (meaning a small molecule is also produced -- in this case, water). Polyester is used in bottles and clothing -- but it can swoosh!
